Q?

How long must I wear the Active Patch 4U?

A.

Depending on the initial discomfort we try and leave the patches on for a minimum of 5 days, but ideally if we want deep and lasting action it is advised to keep them in place for 3 weeks (22 days). This is the length of time that corresponds to fixing the body’s memory in the brain. This is crucial to the physical working of the Active Patch 4U.

The small black membrane is active for 12 days, so it is necessary to change the patch at least once to respect the optimum 3 week timescale. Remember to visit our self help to determine how many Active Patches you will need for your area of pain or discomfort.

Be careful, sometimes the sticky part of the patch can come unstuck, if this happens remove the black membrane and stick it back on with another piece of tape.

Q?

If I have an area of discomfort, why must I apply an Active Patch

A.

If you put a patch directly on the area of discomfort (joint, muscle or ligament), an increase of micro circulation will immediately start up and thus a healing or recovery phase begins.

Meanwhile the energy increase on this zone will stimulate local receptors and send the information to your brain. Where the patch is placed there is increased awareness, which will subsequently alter  the body’s balance, its flexibility, or stop limping etc...

So, first we place a patch on the area of discomfort, but also we place patches on the muscles and ligament captors controlling this specific zone, to increase the brain’s consciousness to this part of the body.

Better motor function is displayed, limping disappears and in general you feel physically better and therefore recovery is easier.

Q?

How does Active Patch 4U actually work?

A.

Each patch contains a small black membrane. This black foam membrane works as a mirror that reflects part of the infrared energy produced by the body. The heat producing infrared rays are not reflected. Also there is only an increase of 0,1°C beneath the foam.

Only infrared wavelengths found in the long waves between 4 and 800 micrometers are reflected which is nearly 97%. This energy reflected to the cells has exactly the same wavelengths as  the human body  and therefore the cells can use the energy instantly. This is why a stiff muscle only needs 30 seconds to relax.

You will note an increase in the micro circulation around the patch.

Q?

What does the Active Patch 4U Contain?

A.

Each Active Patch 4U contains a specific quantity of more than 20 different, finely ground, metal oxides and rare minerals.

The concentration of each ingredient is approx. 30g/m², ground to <5 microns

Its black colour comes from the presence of organic coal. This increases the patches potential to radiate heat and increases the effectiveness.

Q?

My Active Patch 4U has come loose shortly after application?

A.

The Active Patch4U should quite easily last days, but some people do have an oily skin which may cause the Active Patch 4U to come loose early. If this is the case, simply cut the black membrane off the plaster and use traditional tape to tape the black membrane to the affected area.

The black membrane is what the Active Patch4U is all about and that can last up to 12 days. This is one method of making the Active Patch 4U last much longer.
